The Nittany Lions, in a contest that featured eight lead changes, managed to pull off the last of the night, thanks in part to dominant defense in the fourth quarter and a thrilling game-winning drive led by quarterback Sean Clifford

Amid a hostile atmosphere, in a game of wild emotional and momentum swings, Penn State Football knocked off the Purdue Boilermakers 35-31, improving to 1-0 on the young season.
